I’m Julie. I’m passionate about the intersection of design, art, tech, and business. I also have a love for music and nature.
After graduating from NC state’s College of Design, I founded the laser cut wood jewelry company, Woodville Unltd, in 2010.
I’m currently a Product Owner inside of the Product & Engineering team at Spoonflower in Durham, NC. Spoonflower is a digital textile printing company that produces custom printed fabric for DIY crafter’s around the world. We also host the world’s largest online marketplace for independent surface designers. You can check out their entrepreneurial success here
I’m also passionate about UX/UI design. In recent years, I completed Springboards UX design course and interned with Pixbit. Pixbit was a boutique firm based out of HQ Raleigh. The company was founded by Saul Flores, and Edwin Estrada, as a joint venture between design and technology. They had a team of creatives and programmers to help them design and develop iOS apps for local and national clients.
I love working with small businesses related to design or music culture. I am always looking for new opportunities to learn more about design and business!
Specialties: Product (Industrial) Design, UX Strategy, Product Development, E-commerce, 3rd Party Maketplaces, Branding and Marketing.
I graduated summa cum laude from the NC State college of design in December 2009 with a bachelor in Industrial Design and a minor in Art and Design.
After graduating from college, my business partner Adrian and I started our own business, Woodville Unltd, in Durham, NC. Woodville Unltd specialized in making high quality, custom wood jewelry using a laser cutter.
I sold my own designs as well as designed custom pieces for customers and celebrities in the hip-hop music industry. I was responsible for managing every aspect of the business including design, production, marketing, accounting, managing, and customer service.
Woodville Unltd created jewelry for Nike Black History Month, A3C Music Festival, Gym Class Heroes, Travie McCoy, UNC Basketball and Football players, Danny Green, Diplo, Major Lazer, Jean Grae, 2 Chainz, Cyhi The Prynce, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, King Mez, Ab-Soul, Mac Miller, 9th Wonder, Rapsody, Jamla Records, Wiz Khalifa, DJ Paradime, Curren$y, Khleo Thomas, MK Asante, BroccoliCity, Beat Making Lab, WISH ATL, AGS boutique, Danny Brown, Nipsey Hussle, Janelle Monae, and TDE.
After 4 years of running Woodville Unltd, I realized that I had learned and accomplished a lot on my own but there was a lot more I could learn from working for other successful companies. I closed Woodville in May 2014 in search of learning opportunities at other companies I admired.
